Ali Modu Sheriff-PDPDisputed national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, yesterday explained that he had not reached an agreement with anyone to relinquish his position as chairman of the party.

Mr. Sheriff told reporters in Abuja on Saturday that contrary to insinuations that he was in the process of relinquishing power to Senator Ahmed Makarfi, the chairman of the national caretaker committee, there was no such plan.

The disputed national chairman was reacting to the presence of his ally, Senator Buruji Kashamu, at last week’s meeting of the PDP expanded national caucus meeting, where it was speculated that the Ogun East PDP senator had reached an agreement on behalf of Sheriff to step down for Makarfi.

Dismissing the speculation as false, the National Vice Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh, who spoke on behalf of Sheriff, said categorically yesterday that the former Borno governor has “not reached agreement with anybody, neither has he permitted anybody to conclude on any processes on his behalf.

“We are continuing with our cases in court, we respect the rule of law. Sheriff will address a press conference on Monday (tomorrow) on the state of our party, PDP. Our goal remains to return the party to the people and stamp out impunity”.

Ojuogboh said the issues that led to the crisis in the party, which Sheriff is trying to address, have not been resolved.

He also stressed that the Sheriff faction was still in court on the leadership crisis confronting the PDP, adding that the national chairman would address the nation on the state of the party on Monday (tomorrow).
